got the data, now what rear spring

Feels pretty good as is to me, but I have been out of dirt riding 20 years and have no baseline. I "think" I want to dial in more preload, but want to know if I am wasting my time. The terrain I want to dial in for has few big jumps, mostly large whoops in pairs and also need to loft front to keep spped up and let rear take impact with throttle on. I have bottomed a couple times, but some say that is good if not excessive. I don't know if I am explaining anything usefull. If I need a new spring, what is good bang for the buck, I don't have to have 10% better for 50% more jack

Yes, a chart could probably tell you the exact spring, but that means little unless you like it.
In time you will be able to recognise all the flaws a motorcycle has. Dont try to look for them beforehand. I could have saved myself tons of money if I had known this all along!

Talk to a tuner, pay the money and ride away thinking how crap the standard set up was.
It may not be cheap, but it is the best.
